Find out what life is like as the head writer of a late night comedy show from A.D. Miles, the guy in charge of the writers' room at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Marc also talks with A.D.'s old partner and current Jimmy Fallon writer Bobby Tisdale. Plus, a Thanksgiving blessing from the founder of this WTF feast.

    I actually liked Miles, but the last little bit with Tinsdale really revealed his true personality. And can I just say how much I hate Charles Fleischer and vote for that as the worst WTF ever?

    I came away from this episode thinking AD Miles was quite funny, despite writing for the world's most unfunny human being. And, even more, I thought the episode was interesting. Man, goes to show what I know. Turns out neither is true, judging from the comments here. I should come here before listening so I know what to think.

    I found the last segment confusing, though, because I couldn't differentiate between the two voices. They sounded so similar.

    LOVED the jazz/rant section. Laughed my ass off!

    "mom, don't throw that away - this isn't all about you - it's all about me!" riot!

    A.D. Miles was great. Daniel-- The Miles/Tisdale segment was obviously a bit.

    Oh god, that professor dream...I cringed knowingly. Like my college daydreams of becoming a radio DJ/record store owner/researcher for a famous author. I knew exactly what I would wear, what I would say. My qualifications for said jobs? Irrelevant to the daydream at hand.

    Sharon... are you Ad Miles?

    The Learning comment sounds a bit condescending..

    The conversation level is always very interesting, but sorry...
    not with this Miles guy...

    I thought AD Miles was cool, and it was really interesting to learn a bit more about what goes into a show like Jimmy Fallon.

    Sometimes instead of waiting rabidly for the huge laughs it's nice to open your ears and let the words go to your brain. It's called learning. It's fun.

    Maybe Crate&Trauma should switch to a plastic bag and a twist tie.

    That is what it takes to "succeed " on TV...

    I love hearing your twits complaining about this guy not being funny. It's an interview for a guy who writes for a tv show. He wasn't doing some bit or an act.

    Wasn't sure about d/l'ing this one. How funny/interesting can a writer for the unfunniest man in America (Jimmy Fallon) be? Having read the above comments, I'll abridge the podcast to the last 10 minutes or so.

    Mike is right, AD Miles was not funny. Maybe one of the worst episodes ever. Still heart you, Marc.
